Museum Het Valkhof, Nijmegen,
The Netherlands, 2006
Bisazza mosaic, wood, acrylic paint, aluminum,
300 x 300 x 300 cm.
with artists inspired by Italy.
A mosaic floor with the image of a giant pizza. The work is made
out of over 40.000 square glasspieces. These pieces look like big
pixels in the realistic image. From far the object looks like a
real pizza, closer, the work looks like an embroidery, and real
close the image becomes unrecognizable abstract.
Three giant masks, without skin, are hanging above the pizza floor.
Masks, derived from the 'Commedia dell'arte' and the Venezian Carnival.
